Frequently Asked Questions

To put it simply, a general contractor is in charge of everything including the oversight of scheduling and budgeting. As your general contractor, Standing Lites will handle everything from construction management (like procuring materials, hiring necessary subcontractors, communicating with vendors, and supervising the construction site).

While you are always welcome to hire an architect or design firm, one of the benefits of our company being a design-build contractor is that we can provide the design services prior to starting the construction. This ultimately helps you save on design costs and streamline the process.

As involved as you want! It’s your project and we want you to be in love with it.

If you’ve never gone through a home remodel before, it can be overwhelming not knowing what to expect! Before starting on your remodeling project, a project manager will lay out what to expect. This conversation will cover many areas such as:

  • Site access
  • Normal job hours
  • Security measures
  • Emergency contacts
  • Safety
  • Debris and cleanup
  • Dumpster locations
  • Potential utility interruptions
  • Parking
  • Porta-toilet locations
  • Etc

We provide all estimates free of charge unless otherwise stated.

For both residential and commercial construction, we can help our customers get the necessary permits needed to proceed with the work.

Without knowing the full scope of work, it’s hard to accurately estimate a timeline for completion. Getting a simple shower remodel vs. knocking out a wall to extend your closet are two very different projects that will require different expectations for time. Your project manager will discuss with you completion details prior to starting the job.

Many of our services are our own Standing Lites crews. We’ve built a large team of experts across multiple fields from roofing to mold remediation and custom homes. When needed or if the expertise is outside of our realm, we hire subcontractors that meet our high quality standards only.

The terms of payment will be outlined in the contract based on progress and completion dates. 

When it comes to home and commercial services like roofing, construction, and remodeling, choosing a contractor should never simply come down to lowest bid, and you should be wary of ultra-low prices. We carry adequate insurance to protect you from any mishaps and hire only the best experts in the industry. Our work is unmatched and we are confident in our workmanship and skill. For this reason, we do not match other bids.

If for some reason you want to change the original scope of work or something comes up that was unforeseen, we will issue a change order that authorizes us to do work not specified in the original contract. We will never add on anything without your permission.

We will ensure you have several ways to contact us during your project from cell phone numbers to email addresses. We understand the importance of prompt communication during any construction or home service!

Of course! Standing Lites is also a full service roofing company and provides repairs, inspections, and installations. We will determine what you would most benefit from that fits in your budget.
